Terminology Bulletin 263
By Louise Claude in co-operation with Lise Gautron, Marc Deschênes, John Kelly, Stéphane Gagnon and Grant Statham. The Translation Bureau and Parks Canada are proud to present the second edition, revised and expanded, of the Avalanche Bulletin Vocabulary. The entire base list was examined by a committee composed mainly of avalanche professionals and a special feature of this work, which contains the terminology of some 650 concepts, is that each term is listed with a context illustrating its use.
